Love, Laughter and Friendship are Welcome Here.

Hi Everyone..well I've heard it said that "coming home is the best part of going away", you know I think that's true.  I had a WONDERFUL time at Angies house..I had the day time to spend with her and the afternoons and night to spend with the was just awesome.  They boys have a ritual of watching a movie for about 45 minutes or so before they  go to bed..they have a playroom and folks the only pieces of furniture to sit on are 2 beanbags!! I am sure it was quiet funny watching this old lady get out of the floor..HEHEHEHE 

They have a beautiful home and have it decorated so pretty.  They live on the outskirts of Huntsville..but way OUT..they have close neighbors but its still what I call "in the country" They have a neighbor who has a big garden and he has been keeping them in fresh veggies this summer..and some of the best tomatoes I have ever eaten..oh talk about good...these are better than good..I brought a bag full home with me and gave some to my mom, she said they were the best tomatoes she has eaten since she was a girl and her dad raised them!! I'm having a sandwich for lunch and its making me hungry just talking about them!!

I don't know where my daughter learned to cook but she can sure cook...she fed me very very well with some of the best meals that I've had in a long long time...just delicious!!! She made a salad type dish with a layer of those awesome tomatoes, a layer of onions sliced very thin, and a layer of cucumbers sliced thin, she added sugar, dill, and some oil and vinegar and let it set for a long all should try it...its out of this world.

I made a good many pictures while I was there...this is one of them

Ready for school RS 

Angie and Gage getting ready for school..I did this for Kims Color Challenge Poor Gage has so many cowlicks, he inherited them from my dad, that it is hard to get his hair combed down..almost impossible..we are all plagued with those darn things..LOL

Hi Jazzy,

So glad you had some time away - it IS refreshing. It sounds like you have a loving family - your pride for your dd shines through loud and clear.

The salad recipe sounds delish, and fresh veg make all the difference!

I can just imagine you trying to get free of the beanbag chairs - LOL - they kinda swallow you up if you're not careful! How special of you to join them in their movie watching, they will remember that.

All of the layouts are simply lovely - I would have a hard time to chose a favorite, though who could resist baby in the clouds?

Thank you for sharing your lovely giveaway, its wonderful!

You have a great day!
